Sorry but that's how it works.

These do slow down as temps rise to prevent burnout. You didn't tell much about this model so I can't see if prior suggestions would apply.

Let's guess this is a new laptop. Why not make it a warranty or reason to get a refund?

I don't think it's possible to avoid

You didn't run out and get a coolpad and I can't gurantee that will cure it. Laptops need as much help as possible to keep cool. Sounds like this one is defective to me.

I get this issue the most on the Battlefield series. Especially Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline.

I found that disabling the GPU Boost helps while in game to keep a higher FPS

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
